3 Signs that You Have a Drainage Problem

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandSeptember 13th, 2020

signs that will alert you that you have a drainage problem
There are many problems that can affect your home, from roof damage to a termite infestation. If you have a septic system, however, one of the most serious issues that can plague your home is a drainage problem. If water isn’t draining away from your home like it should, then it’s likely that septic effluent isn’t draining properly either. Our team at Southeastern Septic LLC wants to help you keep your home and septic system in the best possible condition, and in order to do that we have put together a list of signs that will alert you that you have a drainage problem. If you notice any of the following things, we encourage you to give us a call.

• Standing Water. One clear sign of a drainage problem is puddles of standing water in your yard. A yard with proper drainage will channel rainwater away from your home so that moisture can’t seep into the foundation, but if the ground isn’t sloped right you may see pools of water lingering around your property even long after it rains. If you notice this phenomenon in your yard, you can turn to our team to help you make the necessary adjustments.

• Cracking Foundation. As we at Southeastern Septic LLC mentioned above, one potential consequence of a drainage problem is a cracked or damaged foundation. If you start to see your flooring become uneven or your sheetrock begin to show hairline cracks, then your foundation is in trouble. In that situation, we urge you to call us as soon as possible to come inspect the problem and devise a solution.

• Mildew Odor. Another problem that can result from a drainage issue is mildew. If parts of your home begin to take on a mildew-like odor, then you probably have a drainage problem on your hands. Our team at Southeastern Septic LLC has the right experience to help correct your water woes and prevent more mildew from growing in the future.
